George Washington Clawson
George initially traveled to the Salt Lake Valley in the as a teamster in the Heber C. Kimball Company in 1848, but he must have returned east because he is seen on the trail again in 1849 driving the wagon for Edward Sayers and his wife.
He later participated as one of the rescuers that were sent out in the winter of 1856 to assist the members of the Church stranded in Wyoming.
Some sources (Improvement Era, vol. 8, 232 and Journal History, 19 Nov. 1904, 3) have confused the death of George Washington Clawson (who died in Shelley, Idaho, on 19 Nov. 1904) with the death of George Washington Catlin. The Improvement Era and Journal History are incorrect because Catlin died in 1898. 1900 Utah census verifies birth month and year.
